That's not taking things too far. That's called dedication. You're making it sound like they were a bunch of fools who didn't really need to put that effort into adapting to their roles.

How dumb are actors? Why don't they try acting? Make-up? The trouble with method acting is, you can see them acting, and as Spencer Tracy once said, "don't let them catch you acting." Ed Norton was another one to mess up his body for a role. It became an unfortunate trend.

Or you have extremely famous and successful actors like Robert Mitchum, [war movies, westerns, suspense, film noir] he said ''Anyone can act''. No other actor would ever admit it. They said; ''but Mr. Mitchum you were so good in such & such'' to which he replied '' They paid me more''.

losing weight for a movie role is not method acting. If you're playing an insomniac then to be method the actor would also have to be sleep deprived. Same for the drug abuse. To be method the actor would also have to be a drug user. Running 13 miles a day is not method for playing an addict.

Dustin Hoffman once said he didn't sleep for 2 days to look the part in a scene from " Marathon Man " (1975) and one of his co-stars Sir.Lawrence Olivier asked him " Why would you do that " Hoffman responded " To look the part " and Olivier's response was " Why...can't you act ? ". Lol, priceless. Hoffman said that was the biggest lesson in acting of his whole career.

Heath Ledger made a standard for the joker. But let's all be honest. Before the joker, he wasn't known for intensity. Had Daniel Day Lewis been cast for that part, it would've been labeled a horror movie.

Yes, the method acting is a thing but really the important issue is about using control. it's absurd and not worth it. It damages your body and spirit and doesn't do anything. Hard to do. Cate Blanchette as Elizabeth I; and Jane Fonda; Alan Bates, Oliver Reed, Richard Burton, Lauren Bacall springs to mind..

Rob McElhenney of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gained 50 lbs for season 7 and has now reversed with 5% body fat for season 13, keeping in line with his character's obsession of bulking up in mass to help get super ripped.

I like a lot of Jim Carrey movies but when I saw the Jim and Andy Documentary I lost a lot of respect for him because he wasn't channeling anything, he was a jerk! Andy Kaufman and Jerry Lawlor were friends and Jim Carrey acted like an A Hole to Jerry, so he wasn't channeling anything! The studio was brilliant in hiding that material because Jim Carrey came looking like an A Hole!

Seeing Ashton Kutcher trying to be a serious actor is like Dwayne Johnson and John Cena trying to be a serious actor. I cant just take them seriously without laughing. But, The Butterfly Effect made me think differently about Ashton.

I think respect is a big part of what makes a good method acting role. Adrian Brody is obviously trying to honor the survivors of the Holocaust. I remember him saying something to the effect of "I never understood the desperation of hunger". I think that's a humbling experience. I think guys like Jim Carey and Jared Leto are just being assholes. They're too obsessed with staying in character and acting "crazzyyyyy". When Daniel Day Lewis isolates himself to better understand the character of a period piece, he's benefiting his performance. When Jim Carey won't answer to his own name and torments his co-workers, he's just acting like a pretentious asshole.
